Don’t know about you, but I’m going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I’m gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I’m trying to get from the 110 stone that I currently am down to maybe an even 100. I also finished watching Black Books, so I need to find something else to watch. But that’s as may be. What you all want right now are reviews. Let’s get those to you.
Today we have: Multiuniversum, Multiuniversum: Project Cthulhu, Hero Realms, Hero Realms Character Packs, The Mountains Rise, Legends of Andor: Journey to the North, Band Manager: Backstage Clash, Age of Sigmar, Imhotep, Cavern Tavern, Superhot, Forged in Steel, The Civilized Guide to Tabletop Gaming, Pirate Lords, and Steel Arena.
It’s Saturday. Those of you that are at KingdomCon, be sure to selfie responsibly. #RossFace
For me, it’s the weekend before CMON Expo, so I’m super-busy getting things put together for the show. Lots to do, both work-related and just other things I need to get done.

Hey there everyone. Welcome to Saturday. Hopefully you’re having a good day. If you missed it, be sure to check out the Age of Sigmar rules that Games Workshop posted.
If you’re in the US and you’re celebrating Independence Day, be sure to be careful with those fireworks.
I’m taking a moment from the cooking that I’m doing. What am I making? Well, I’ve got hamburgers and hot dogs that I’ll have later. I’m going to make some crawfish gumbo. On the sweet side of things, I’m making cheesecake with strawberry glaze and then chip’n’mint cookies.
But that’s as may be. At the moment, we’ve got our Review Roundup.
This weeks reviews/previews include: Unleashed RPG, Spyfall, Cockroach Poker Royal, Specter Ops, Ember: Shadow of the Demon, Star Realms: Crisis Expansion, Tuscany, Patrol Angis, Don’t Be That Guy, and Swords and Bagpipes.
Nerds on Earth takes a look at the iOS version of Star Realms and gives us their thoughts on the situation in this article.
From the post:
Have you ever been to a baseball game and noticed that the people sitting behind home plate think every high fly ball is a home run, so they explode to their feet and their hands shoot up in the air?
“Oh! OH! OH! Awwwww…”
Of course, it turns out that it wasn’t a home run at all and the ball was caught in shallow right field, so all the fans just sit back down and make comments about what could’ve been. Hold that image because it will be relevant later on in this review of Star Realms for iOS.
White Wizard Games ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for their deck-building game, Star Realms. Our own Enrico Nardini, hot on the heels of his editorial yesterday, takes a look at the game in this review post.
Enrico picked up a copy for himself and wanted to share his thoughts on it.
So strap on your flight helmet and space boots, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s Star Realms.
Board Game Quest takes a look at Star Realms, the deck building game, in this game review.
From the website:
Star Realms aims to create a direct conflict game that feels a lot like a CCG, but is played out of a single box retailing for $15. Star Realms is designed by two former Magic: The Gathering pros and Hall of Fame members, Robert Dougherty and Darwin Castle and published by White Wizard Games. At its heart, Star Realms is a deck builder. However, there are no bosses to attack or super villains to team up against. The focus is player-vs-player combat, and the last man standing wins.
Star Realms is a 2-player game that plays in about 20 minutes. There are multiplayer variants that require additional copies of the game.
